We are a grassroots charity that was founded in 1991 by Lawrence and Kay Greenaway after they lost their daughter Pamela Greenaway-Kohlmeier to this devastating disease. From this beginning we have evolved into one of Canada's leading breast cancer research funding organizations, dedicated to raising funds for research across Canada to eradicate breast Cancer.
We truly believe that every dollar Canadians donate to research brings us one step closer to discovering the causes of breast cancer, better methods to prevent and detect it, treatments that are more effective and improving the quality of life for survivors.
